Mogilevsky to Play Even More Chopin in Berlin and Hamburg

Berlin and Hamburg have the opportunity to witness none other than Vladimir Mogilevsky interpret Frédéric Chopin. Critics agree that nobody plays like him.

Berlin, November 7th, 2022 (The Berlin Spectator) —  Vladimir Mogilevsky is being drowned in praise. The pianist is “Liszt’s true successor”, according to ‘Europa Express’. Other dailies and magazines accurately call him a “congenial interpreter” or a “virtuoso and real musician”. Most publications use the very same phrasing because of the fact that there simply are not enough words for this kind of amazing sound.

What does the Composer Want to Say?

Mogilevsky himself delivers the most convincing description of his magic piano performance. He does not use words, but rather 88 black and white piano keys on the concert grand. In other words: Critics can use the words ‘virtuoso’ and ‘genius’ a million times. They do have a point, but only listening to the master play will really show people what he can do.

Compassion and perfection are two more words people use in sentences that also include his name. Vladimir Mogilevski himself has said the question what the composer wanted to tell the audience was crucial. “In most cases, you cannot ask them anymore”, the 51-year-old master accurately states, but he does provide excellent answers with his fingers on the keys, and he has done so for a very long time.

Mogilevsky was born in Moscow in 1970, when it was the capital of the Soviet Union. His unbelievable gift was discovered when he was only 5 years old. In 1994, at age 24, he completed his studies at the renown Gnessin Musical Academy, with the highest evaluation possible, and moved to Germany in 1995. Then, in the following decades, he received countless deserved prizes.

There is Only One Vladimir Mogilevsky

Both his audiences and critics appreciate Mogilevsky’s individuality and his “fresh” interpretations. His repertoire includes a wide range of compositions from Bach to contemporary pieces. It is not all classical music. Vladimir Mogilevsky does not have any problem with playing Gershwin either. His incredible memory makes sure he is always ready to play anything, even at a moment’s notice.

So he switches back and forth between composers all the time. After playing Tchaikovsky, he would interpret Milhaud, Hindemith, Strauss, Liszt or Chopin. His “Chopin Pur” (“Pure Chopin”) concert series pulls big audiences all the time, which is why it was prolonged.

Apart from performing in Germany and Russia a lot, Mogilevsky did hit stages in more exotic countries too, including Israel, Turkey, China, South Africa and Mexico. Before Corona turned the world into a mess, he spent a lot of time in VIP lounges at the world’s airports, in hotel suites and, fortunately, on stages, behind well tuned concert grands.

Liszt’s Old Piano

Besides, he does very special gigs: In 2002, the Liszt Festival in Bonn booked Vladimir Mogilevsky. On that occasion, he did not perform on stage, but in Franz Liszt’s house, playing the late composer’s actual concert grand manufactured by Bechstein. He also played on instruments which were used by other big composers, including Beethoven.

In 2004, Mogilevsky’s debut concert in Berlin took place. Since, he has been in the capital a lot. He is scheduled to perform at the Philharmonie twice in the next six months. More good news: Hamburg’s Laeiszhalle is on the tour plan too.
